Adventures in Quilt Basting

I am so happy to be well on my way to finishing my star block quilt! Yesterday I pin basted it on the floor. As you can see, I had a helper. Harry just had to get in on the fun! 

I really like how bright and cheerful this quilt is. It will be a favorite for sure.

If only I could train him to help me pin. Notice the trusty Altoids tin. Perfect for holding basting pins! ;) 

Last night I was able to get it quilted. I had a little trouble maneuvering the quilt and feeding it through my Janome machine. I had it rolled up on each side but it was still cumbersome. Nonetheless I am excited to get home tonight and make some binding!

What are you working on lately? Hope everyone is having a great Monday!
